He is managing partner of West Palm Beach-based Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith.
The Florida Bar President Gary Lesser is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at the Jacksonville Bar Association member luncheon Aug. 25 at the Marriott Jacksonville Downtown.
Managing partner of West Palm Beach-based Lesser, Lesser, Landy & Smith, he was sworn in June 24 as the 74th president of The Florida Bar.
Lesser is a longtime leader in the state organization, including more than a decade on its board of governors.
He was chair of the Legislation Committee for three years; served on the Executive Committee for four years; and was chair of the Strategic Planning and Professional Ethics committees.
“My top priority is to support and protect the independent judiciary and legal profession. We are making a big push to increase greater access to legal services, which is a national issue, and launching a statewide mentoring program for younger lawyers, which will be very beneficial for their career paths,” Lesser said at his induction ceremony.
Lesser received his undergraduate degree in international affairs from The George Washington University and his law degree from the University of Miami, where he was editor-in-chief of the law school newspaper.
He was admitted to the Florida Bar and became a member of the Palm Beach County Bar Association in 1992.
